A Trip To The Beach

We thought moving 2 miles from the beach would make it convenient to go any time we wanted.  Of course to some degree that is true, but we've had so much going on lately that we haven't had a chance to indulge as much as we'd like this Summer.  Despite having only a small window of time between finishing laundry and meeting friends for dinner, we decided to pack up our beach bag and head to the Pacific, even if only for a short while.

It turned out to be simply a tease.  The air was warm, the waves were gentle and we found the perfect place to set up our blanket and brand new beach umbrella.  Once we dipped our bodies in we were certain to never want to come out.  Talk about perfection!  This was the ideal remedy to a scorching hot weekend, and apparently everyone else agreed, from the looks of the crowded surf.

After what seemed like a short time of wading about, I mentioned to Jess that we better move to shore if we were gonna get a chance to soak in some rays.  I guess I wasn't surprised when I saw that we had already run over the time we alloted ourselves.  Oh, just five more minutes please?  Needless to say, we were a tad bit late getting to the restaurant, but I give us a pat on the back for showing up at all.
